I scan the images directly into Irfanview and then save the files as PDF. Then use PDFMerge to create the Multi-page PDF. Much faster than FineReader and I have never had any problems. FineReader is a bit of overkill for Archive stuff. I found both FineReader and Acrobat to be to slow especially for multi-page files. The great thing is that both Irfanview and PDFMerge are OpenSource programs and are much better resource-wise than the others.
